A time to reflect and be still. Examine the stars and our lives. I believe slowing down supports us to enable us to tune into ourself and what we want to do with our time. A period of time where from my understanding the earth’s axis of rotation changes very slowly. “Axial precession is gravity-induced, slow, and continuous change in the orientation of an astronomical body’s rotational axis. A gradual shift in the orientation of Earth’s axis of rotation.”

(13c.) from Latin solstitium “point at which the sun seems to stand still,” *especially the summer solstice

If I trace the origins of the word “Stop” it leads to
Stop -> Stuff -> Draw Together ->Draft->
which enables us to create whatever drafts we stand behind.

Participle stem of sistere “stand still, take a stand; to set, place, cause to stand,” -reduplicated form of root *sta- “to stand, make or be firm.” To BE, I do not want to be looking for what I stand for or what things mean or are, but feel it’s almost just a matter of peeling away the layers and discovering alternative or expanded meanings of elements. I don’t feel I am obsessed with words and etymology but am content to obsess =(~haunt/posses)…

Obsess=Ob-Sedere

Ob = Opposite
Sedere= Sit
with words to a point that they don’t haunt or possess me. But the more revealed we discover a fresh perspective and feel at home and more capable.
